Paying it forward

THE STORY:

In celebration of National Family Literacy Day®, I'd to give a shout out to my mom, dad and sister for helping me learn to read. I remember getting tucked into bed, snuggling up to my mom and following along as she read to me. It was instrumental to my education, but not everyone is so fortunate to have that support.

Education is not just important, it's the foundation for so much in our lives. From reading a prescription label, to filling out a job application, to managing finances, being literate is woven into every part of daily life.

But did you know the family - parents, children, grandparents, siblings and beyond - plays a crucial role in education? Children’s reading scores dramatically improve when their parents are involved in helping them learn to read. And children’s performance on standardized tests can be increased with every additional year of their mother’s schooling.

Today my organization and our advocates are raising money to help fund literacy and learning in communities nationwide, including my home town of Louisville, Kentucky.

I'm asking you to pay it forward --for the person who taught you to read-- and donate to the #NCFLBigGive at www.ncflbiggive.org. If you're unable to give, there are other ways to help spread the message:
- Share why you feel learning/education/literacy is important on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Include #NCFLBigGive in your posts.
- Email this message to your family and friends to increase awareness that family, home and community are the true drivers of a child’s education.
